Each time runs readahead-replay may cause readahead-collect to record
more blocks to read ahead -- size of "/.readahead" never reduces.
Also I found "/.readahead" recorded files like ".xession-errors" which
is written only, thus should not be read ahead.
Maybe adjust readahead-collect-done.timer to 5s will help.
